Hi there,

So, a volunteer task:

* figure out a way (using eggbasket?) to download a list of requirements 
of Grok 1.1. Including windows eggs and such.

* put all the requirements into a directory and publishing them on a URL 
using some kind of apache-like directory index thing.

* add a find-links to buildout.cfg of a grokproject to that URL

* Does grok still install?

* now knock out pypi.python.org, possibly by blocking out the host 
entirely on your machine. (Alternatively, very very carefully monitor 
network traffic. That's a less reliable method)

* see whether all packages are indeed coming from the find-links http 
site you put up, and not from anywhere else. I.e. it still works no 
matter what pypi does.

* is it significantly slower? Faster? tell us!
